We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet .......



I think Maxine says it all....I don't make New Year's Resolutions anymore because of the high probability of breaking all of them within the first day of the New Year. Just starting a new year is enough for me....new year, new start, new year to accomplish something on my list of "things-I-want-to-do-before-I-die"....even if only one, new year to spend time with my family, new year to spend with friends, new year to be a better person....well, you get the picture :)

So,with this modern version of the old Scottish lyrics, I wave goodbye to 2007
and lift my cup to 2008....

Times Long Gone
by Robert Burns

(translation)

Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And days of long ago !

Chorus:
For old long ago, my dear
For old long ago,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago.

We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary foot
For old long ago.

We two have paddled (waded) in the stream
From noon until dinner time,
But seas between us broad have roared
Since old long ago.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend,
And give us a hand of yours,
And we will take a goodwill draught (of ale)
For old long ago!

And surely you will pay for your pint,
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago!
